Because IPv4 and IPv6 can coexist on a network, the router on such a network
needs to forward both traffic types. Given this coexistence, each switch
maintains a separate routing table for IPv6 routes. The switch can forward
IPv4 and IPv6 traffic over the same set of interfaces.
For information about configuring IPv6 routes, see "Configuring IPv6
Routing" on page 1057.
OSPFv3 provides a routing protocol for IPv6 networking. OSPFv3 is a new
routing component based on the OSPF version 2 component. In dual stack
IPv6, you can configure and use both OSPF and OSPFv3 components.
For information about configuring OSPFv3, see "Configuring OSPF and
OSPFv3" on page 943.
DHCPv6 incorporates the notion of the "stateless" server, where DHCPv6 is
not used for IP address assignment to a client, rather it only provides other
networking information such as DNS, Network Time Protocol (NTP), and/or
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) information.
For information about configuring DHCPv6 settings, see "Configuring
DHCPv6 Server and Relay Settings" on page 1077.
